We take a close look at the world’s fastest business jet, the Bombardier Global 7500, and the Pagani Huayra Roadster BC hypercar in Singapore


Hypercar maker Pagani and aerospace manufacturer Bombardier joined forces to show off their top-flight wares recently, with a viewing of the Bombardier Global 7500 business jet and Pagani Huayra Roadster BC hypercar for VIPs and the media at Bombardier’s facility in Seletar Aerospace Park today. 

There’s obvious synergy for the two brands, since both aim at super-high net worth individuals who want the best of the best, as we’ll detail below. But in short, owning both of these machines will cost you around S$117-million dollars. To afford that, you’d need to have won the most recent Toto draw (S$4.2m split three ways) a total of 84 times, and you’d have little change left over too. 

But even if you had the dosh, you won’t be able to get your hands on the Pagani anyway. As is standard for a limited-edition hypercar these days, if you have to ask the price, you’re already too late on the draw, as they’re completely sold out.

The Pagani Huayra Roadster BC  is the last hurrah of Pagani’s second full-production model, the Huayra, which followed the brand’s debutante Zonda model, and will be replaced by the Pagani Utopia. The BC Roadster is limited to 40 units worldwide, with two in Singapore. On the road, with full registration and taxes, the car costs approximately S$14m. 

The car is powered by a 6.0-litre biturbo V12 engine developed for Pagani by Mercedes-AMG, it makes 790hp and 1,050Nm of torque, giving it a 0-100k/h time of around three seconds with a top speed well in excess of 300km/h. 

The Roadster has a targa style top, and its bodywork is, as far as we can tell, almost entirely made of carbonfibre. Pagani boasts that the car is quite a bit different from the normal Huayra Roadster, with significant changes to the engine, exhaust, body, suspension, and even the type of carbonfibre used, as our colleagues at Top Gear point out.

Behind the passenger headrests you can see the more silvery weave of Pagani’s unique carbo-titanium blended composite, with strands of titanium weaved in. In person, the car’s attention to detail and execution is almost second to none – it’s entirely handbuilt, and obviously by skilled artisans, not random Jimmies off the street as we’ve seen in some handbuilt cars.

But if you want to take things to a higher level, literally, then don’t worry as the Bombardier Global 7500 has you covered:Its claim to fame is that it’s the fastest and the longest-ranging machine in the private business jet class (we’re not counting crazy private airliners here).

It’s a little faster than the Pagani, with a maximum speed of Mach 0.94, or 1,160km/h and a cruise speed of Mach 0.93, and it has a range of  8,000 nautical miles (14,816km). Bombardier claims it can get you from London to Tokyo, or even Singapore to Los Angeles, without refuelling. The jet also broke the speed record from LA to New York, taking just 3hr 54 minutes.

Speed and endurance isn’t the only draw, as Bombardier also claims the 7500 is class-leading in multiple areas. It says the flexible wing design gives the aircraft excellent flight characteristics, but also a smoother ride. It also boasts the largest cabin, with four separately-configurable living spaces – you can choose an entertainment/lounge section, and a master bedroom, for example. There is also a dedicated crew spaces, and a full-featured kitchen.

The price for globe-trotting at your comfort and convenience? US$78-million (S$103.4m), which includes the price of the aircraft and configuring it to your needs.
